DELUGE OF APPLICANTS V 1 f ... F 5 LION'S VICTIM Zoltan Hargitay, 6-year-old son of actress Jayne Mansfield, is supported by Murray Banks, wearing striped shirt, and another man after he was rescued f rom.the jaws of a lion at Jungleland in Thousand Oaks. Banks pulled the child away from the animal. Jayne Mansfield's Son, 6, Mauled by Lion at Jungleland Continued from First Page - - - boy may have a chest injury involving fractured ribs, and-that a chest surgeon had been called in.. Miss Mansfield was prostrated for a time, but recovered her composure to some extent when told Zoltan had recovefed consciousness momentarily and had complained he was hungry. . . "That's always a good sign," the actress was assured. "Ira praying she said. 07 course I'll stay right hre (at thfe hospital in Canoga Park) tonight." Banks, who said he is in Southern California anon lecture . tour, is a guest in Miss- Mansfield's home at 10100 Sunset Blvd. He said the actress asked him to accompany her to Jungleland where she was" to make some publicity pictures. 4 Others present at the time the lion attacked, including Miss Mansfield's attorney, Sam Brody, said it -was a. . pleasure excursion and that no publicity was involved. Banks said that he took his son, Kevin, 4, with him, and that Miss Mansfield took three of her five children, Miklos, 8; Zoltan, and Maria, 3. ; They had been at Jungleland about 40 minutes when the attack occurred at 3:10 p.m. ' - "We were in a garden section," Banks said. "There were seven or eight lions, tigers and leopards chained there. They were supposed to be tame, but I stayed away from them." Brody also said he was assured the animals were docile and often used in motion pictures. Dave Payne, a freelance photographer, said he had photographed Miss Mansfield near a male lion on a seven-foot chain, but that the animal seemed edgy and that they moved away toward a lioness which appeared to be calmer. . ; Boy Strays in Range Apparently Zoltan strayed within the male lion's reach at this time. "I heard screams of 'Let him go,'" Banks said. "I turned -and saw Zoltan lying on his stomach and the lion with his paws on him, worrying at his neck. "No one seemed to be doing anything. There seemed to be no provision for rescue -in a case like this. People just stood and yelled. That was the most horrifying thing to me. "I ran forward and grabbed Zol-tan's legs, and kicked at the lion's paws. I guess I was yelling, 'Shoot him,' or something. "The lion's grip was like steel. It felt as if Zoltan were in cement. I was afraid to pull, because the lion had his teeth in him. .-. "Then suddenly he let go. I don't know why." Banks said he was conscious of no one else near the lion "All I could see was that damned head and the teeth." However Payne said he saw two men struggling with the lion, and Brody said he believes Roy Kabat, manager and part owner of Jungleland, tried to pull the beast off Zoltan. ; Mother Stays With Son While Miss Mansfield remained at the hospital, B a n k s t o o k 4 1 h e other children to the Sunset Blvd. home where, hours later, he was still shaken. '.. " "When I came to California to lecture I never thought I'd be called on, to wrestle a lion," he said. "I don't remember any fear no emo- tion but horror, I expect to wake up and find ..this whole thing , was a nightmare." . - , , ... 1 1 J Defiant Carmichael Declares Goa,s of Negro Generation Blacks Will Deal With Whites Whether They Like It or Not SNCC Chairman Tells 6,500 at Watts Rally BY RAT ROGERS tim Stiff Wriltr : Civil rights spokesman Stokely Carmichael told a rally" at a Watts park Saturday that this generation of Negroes "is going to deal with white people whether they like it or not." r Previous generations of Negroes have run, "but this generation is out of breath,", said the 25-year-old .national chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating .Committee and "black powers-advocate,;-;! ,-z-;2 afcListening'to Carmichael "speak5 as he stood on the bed of a pickup truck in Will Rogers Park were about 6,500 persons -; . The assembly was orderly." The Sheriffs Department had, a handful of plainclothes 'deputies in the crowd, but there were no incidents. Whites Asked to Move ' Members of the Community Alert Patrol, a Negro organization, circulated through the crowd with two-way radios and asked white newsmen to move to the rear of the crowd and not block anyone's view. Patrol members explained that they did not want whites involved. Carmichael, who spoke about 40 minutes, told the gathering that "every time black people move for liberation we have to apologize to the white man" and that "we don't have to apologize for anything they should have to apologize to us." Carmichael said the only power the Negro leader of today has is the power to contain. N The fiery- SNCC leader said Negroes are unjustly chastised as criminals. "No white man can talk about looting," he said in reference to the 1965 rioting in Watts. "The white men looted the red man and then they looted us.

Murray Banks, who s av e d the child, said the animal gnawed at ler case earlier this year, Carmichael said: "They shoot a black man who is taking his wife to the hospital. We have to show them that if they shoot one of us, they will have to deal with, 40 million. black people." c Carmichael said Negroes will have to build and support their own or ganizations. "There is anewireedof black people in this country today," h'tf said."'"My mother- scrubbed floors so"! I coaid' havef bekJp&rfgr?'J'r?

'Bootstrap' Leader Speaks Before Carmichael spoke, Robert Hall, executive vice president of Operation Bootstrap, a Southeast Los Angeles self-help program, told the audience: "This is a black people's meeting. White people will not tell us what to do or say." A loudspeaker, used by -speakers at the rally, was set up- by Clifford Vaughs, regional director for SNCC, as a substitute for the park's public address system. County officials decided against permitting, use of the park's loudspeaker equipment after the Board of Supervisors failed in an attempt to prevent Carmichael's appearance by denying him a permit. Superior Court Judge Robert. H. Patton ruled Friday that Carmi-' chael could, speak with or without a permit under the constitutional . rights of free speech. 4 -4 ' zoltan s head at least two times.

There's nothing in Pomona." A 17-year-old youth from Huntington Park, who asked not to be identified, was incensed over what he said was a tendency of police to arrest males sporting long hair. "The cops look at your hair first," he said, "and then they decide whether you've broken the law." ..."

"" " With Jetters deluging his temporary headquarters at the Ambassador here and in Sacramento, neither Reagan nor his staff can hope to interview all those who have applied on their own behalf or been recom-,mended:to his screening committees. ' ' . r, - Thus, the computer. Actually it was contracted for by outgoing Gov." Brown but hadn't been "on the line" long enough for effective use. - Located in Santa Monica, the computer will be "fed," or programmed, with the qualifications necessary for the many appointments. : Major Appointments - It will not be used for major appointees to such posts as cabinet positions. ' ! For these jobs the appointive power has to evaluate not onjy technical skills, but other criteria such as administrative competence, rapport with the governor and other factors that can't be fed into a computer. But, for such positions as membership on an agricultural district association, the State Board of Medical Examiners, the California Heritage Preservation Commission, trade commissions and hundreds of others most of them little heard of and non-salaried the computer will do its stuff. . Special Forms Each prospective appointee will be asked to fill out a specially designed form aimed at eliciting his knowledge and qualifications in the field for which he is being considered. Thousands of applications for one post can be submitted to the computer. In less time than it takes to say you're appointed," the computer can come up with the names of those THE STATE POLL Last-Minute Deciders Swung Election, Analysis Discloses BY DON M. An apparent last-minute decision by a significant number of voters caused the massive Republican victory in the November election for" Ronald Reagan and Robert H. Finch over their Democratic rivals, Gov. Brown and Lt. Gov. Glenn M. Anderson. When the election results are contrasted with The State Poll, a public opinion 1 survey published in The Times the day before election, the last minute or "don't know" voter looms as the major factor in the Republican victory sweep of five out of six statewide offices. In view of this significant aspect of the election, The State Poll made an in-depth study of a representative sampling of the "don't know" voters last week. The study last week revealed that Reagan and Finch captured almost the entire "don't know" group on election day. Margins Pushed Up ' Although both Republican challengers had substantial leads over their incumbent Democratic rivals as reported in The State Poll published on Nov. 7, it was the "don't know" voter who, to a large extent, pushed up their margins of victory, according to the recent study. If Spencer .Williams, the Republican candidate for attorney general, had not trailed Democratic incumbent Thomas C. Lynch by such a LA. Attorney to Lead Climb Up Antarctica's Highest Peak " An ll-man party headed by a Los Angeles attorney will leave here Dec. 3 to attempt the first ascent of Antarctica's highest mountain, the 16,880-foot Vinson Massif." "We're not racing anyone, Nicholas Clinch, 36-year-old leader of the expedition, said Saturday, "but it will be nice to get there first." Clinch, veteran of two Himalayan expeditions, said lack of data prevents him from knowing what conditions will be like on the polar peak, "but frankly, we expect it to be colder and windier than anything we've climbed before." But; despite the temperatures which may drop as low as 40 degrees below zero, Clinch said, he expects no particular problems oh the climb. "In the Himalayas, where it was 20 below; the high altitudes (25,000 feet) reduced our ability to withstand cold, and we still did well.-This time our tolerances will : be" much higher." - ' ' 1 , -,- who meet the criteria set up for that particular job. - , - This is but part of what makes '. Reagan's temporary headquarters in an eight-room bungalow at the Ambassador take on the aspect of a boiler factory operated - by the Marx Brothers. . . . Typical Day On a typical day last week: , Reagan's executive assistant, Phi- lip M. Battaglia, met . with Dirk C, . Eldredge Battaglia's assistant, and Lyn Nofziger, Reagan's press secretary, to discuss several prospective appointees. One of them was William P. Clark Jr., Oxnard attorney and rancher and like Reagan, a former Democrat. Clark had indicated his willingness to serve in the new Republican ad- . ministration. - . An hour later, Reagan was having breakfast with Robert H. Finch, lieutenant governor-elect. With them were Battaglia and Nofziger. ? Finch had some names to suggest, . talked about the state budget, a wo-. ; men's task force to seek out women qualified for the more-than-"token-. , posts to which Reagan wants to ap-" point them, and the welfare picture.

In the races for secretary of state ' and state treasurer, the "don't;, knows" voted according to the pat- ; tern established by those who had: already made up their minds and were therefore less significant in the final election outcome. r' ' Edge for Challenger , In both instances the study re-; vealed a slight edge for the challenger, although one was a Republican challenger, Ivy Baker Priest, who defeated incumbent Democrat Bert' Betts for the treasurer's post, and" the other was a Democratic challenger, Norbert Schlei, who lost to incumbent Republican Secretary of State Frank Jordan. The only race in which the "don't: know" voter did not materially af- feet the election outcome was in the,, contest for state controller. ' r Although the "don't know" voter in large part voted for the Republi-. can challenger, Assemblyman Houston Flournoy, the principal cause of the defeat of incumbent Democrat Alan Cranston was that he lost sup- , port of Republican voters which he -had consistently held in a, series, of,.
